    I got a Cyberfire Bee on clearance and while I liked the evil eyes, the yellow was boring. So I thought, why not just make this completely evil and go to town with a pink marker? Easy, Cheap pink bee / laserbeak, right?

    [​IMG]

    The marker was pretty good for getting the fine details. Not so much for the big colour areas. Best part was, I couldn't find anything to colour-match that shade of pink. So I ended up using the marker everywhere. And anyone who has used these oil-based markers knows what that's like.

    2 coats of Future later, it's satisfactory. Looks OK from afar, not so great on close-up. I can live with the mess.

    You know, in you'd told me on paper you were making a black and pink Bee, I'd have laughed at you.

    Seeing it in photos, though, and it looks suitably evil. Sort of like he's so demented head doesn't care what you think of his colour scheme. It's also got that sort of "innocence gone wrong" feel to it, as the idea of an evil pink robot just goes against everything you'd expect. Really awesome concept, now that I see it. Good job. :)

    You did pretty well to have painted it all with a pen! This looks really good, I think I might have to do the same.

    Damn! I totally snagged me an extra CF BB to do that with, simply because of the eyes. Nice job getting there first and the execution looks excellent. Wondering why nobody had done it yet with this mold.

    OMG, awesome!

    Is it bad that I want an evil Pink Cyberfire Laserbee right now, even though I have no money for such a custom?

    I've found the best result when working with the pen is to start with a thin coat, let it completely dry, then a thick one, dry, then a touch up. Finally seal with floor wax.
    The temptation is there to go thick from the start as the coat is smoother but it doesn't layer it consistently for the larger areas.

    Good luck if you decide to go for it!

    Hasbro mass produce this now!

    Great job! Both modes look great, but I really like how you incorporated the colours into car mode.

    Your hand drawn details are fantastic! The symmetry on them is very impressive for such a blunt tipped pen. Nice work!
